For sure! When I posted these climbs I hadn't been on a lot of them, I just took the info from a guide, which was obviously wrong on a lot of accounts. Nice route though.

Wrong as in not the right thing to do? or just incorrect?

Nice to have a long draw on the 4th bolt. I thought the crux was getting between the 3rd and 4th bolt.

Looks like lots of chalk heading toward the anchors of Tecate after the last bolt (and one person I know stating they went that way) for an easier finish, putting the crux in between 3 and 4. Correct anchor is right putting the crux after the last bolt. Certainly not 13, not 12+, more like 12. Despite all the oddities I had a great time on it!

I finished on the anchor's of Tecate thinking that was the correct anchor since that's what it says in Taos Rock. It certainly looked harder finishing straight up as there was no chalk or obvious holds.

Lee's description of "a long move to a 2 finger pocket off an edge" matches perfectly with what I did finishing on the Tecate anchors though.
